Our facial rejuvenation therapy at the Perfect Smile Clinic Ltd involves anti-wrinkle injections. These are commonly referred to as “Botox”, which is short for Botulinum toxin. This is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax and in turn this results in smoothing out wrinkles. It is one of the UK’s most popular cosmetic treatments for the removal of wrinkles. *
*results vary, depending on the individual person
Summary of Your Treatment
How does Botox work?
Facial rejuvenation injections work by blocking the nerve signals to certain muscles. The muscles then become more relaxed, which in turn reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who should have anti-wrinkle injections?
They are the treatment choice for people who have forehead lines, frown lines or wrinkles around their eyes which they wish to reduce.
What does facial rejuvenation treatment involve?
The treatment will involve a series of small injections into the muscles of your face. The injection process itself will only take several minutes. Dr Sanaz Namazy’s choice is Botox®.
Does it hurt?
The procedure is largely pain free, with the exception of mild discomfort which is experienced due to the small needle injection involved. This can be minimised by the application of a topical anaesthetic cream. You may notice some soreness in the injection site directly after the treatment, but this should subside quickly.
Are the injections safe?
Botulinum toxin has been in medical use for more than four decades and it is administered in such a way that it only affects your muscles and sweat glands – it does not reach any other part of the body. As long as it is administered by a qualified medical professional, the risks are extremely minimal.

When will I notice a difference?
The effect starts to work in about 4-5 days, with the greatest effect being seen after about 2-3 weeks.
What are the possible side effects?
Most side effects are short-lived and mild with the most common being mild bruising to the site of the injection. Some patients also report mild headaches shortly after the treatment, but these usually subside within 24 hours.
You should not have this treatment if:
- The injection site is infected
